Matcha may not be everyone’s liking, but for those of us who adore its vibrant green hue and distinct flavor, it’s a good source of antioxidants and has a lot of health benefits. You can use it to make tea, lattes, or baked goods like matcha waffles. 

Matcha waffles are my favorite and for a good reason. These waffles are versatile and easy to whip up. You can top them with anything from fresh berries and honey to a dollop of creamy yogurt or a sprinkle of powdered sugar. Let’s give them a try, it might become your breakfast staple.

Matcha Waffles Ingredients

How to make matcha waffles

  • In a large mixing bowl, mix and sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, matcha powder, and salt. This step ensures that your waffle batter is smooth and free of lumps, allowing the matcha flavor to distribute evenly in the waffles.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, vegetable oil, vanilla extract, and egg until well combined.
  • Pour the wet mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients and whisk until just combined. Be careful not to overmix, as this can result in tough waffles. A few lumps in the batter are perfectly fine!
  • Preheat your waffle maker. Once heated, lightly grease the waffle plates with cooking spray or oil to prevent sticking.
  • Pour the batter onto the preheated waffle maker, spreading it evenly to the edges. Close the lid and cook until golden brown and crispy, typically about 2-5 minutes, depending on your waffle maker.
  • Carefully remove the waffles from the maker and transfer them to a plate. Top with a generous handful of fresh berries and drizzle with honey, powdered sugar, or your favorite jam.

Don’t limit yourself to just breakfast – these matcha waffles also make a delightful dessert or afternoon snack. Pair them with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of chocolate sauce, this combination is honestly irresistible.

Tip to make a perfect matcha waffle

  1. To keep the waffles from going stale: once they’re cooked, place them in a preheated oven at around 200°F (93°C) while you finish cooking the rest of the batch. This helps maintain their crispness until you’re ready to serve. 
  2. If you don’t have time, you can also make a big batch and freeze them. Don’t worry, they still taste as good.

Let’s talk about the buzz around matcha

  1. Matcha is like nature’s little energy boost in a cup (or a waffle!). It gives you that gentle caffeine kick without the jitters you might get from coffee, which is a game-changer for those of us who need a pick-me-up without the crash later.
  2. It is also packed with antioxidants, to help fight off free radicals that can wreak havoc on our cells and keep our body in shape. So basically, sipping on a matcha latte or munching on some matcha waffles gives your body a little extra armor to tackle whatever the day might throw your way.
  3. Also, matcha can rev up your metabolism. Some studies suggest that the catechins in matcha – the source of antioxidants which is twice as much as it is in green tea – may help boost your metabolism and burn fat more efficiently. So, if you’re looking to lose weight, adding some matcha into your routine might just be the ticket.
  4. Let’s not forget about the mental benefits too. Matcha has this way of calming the mind and helping you focus, thanks to the amino acid called L-theanine. So not only does it give you a physical boost, but it also helps you stay sharp and centered throughout the day.

There you have it – matcha isn’t just delicious, it’s also a powerhouse of health benefits.
